Accreditation vs Certification
Kapwell offers years of experience in improving and advancing seperator equipment design to make them more reliable, with modern technologies that perform in all climates and are cost effective. Our equipment are UKCA / CE marked and ATEX certified, and complies with latest applicable ASME, API, DNV, and ABS standards.
Kapwell Hydrocylones are capable of achieving effective solids separation while minimising pressure drop thanks to their design that was developed to accommodate the demanding circumstances of the upstream process. In order to achieve maximum efficacy, the differential pressures and flow rates of the system are used to establish the optimal number of functioning Hydrocyclone liners. The choice of hydrocyclone, both in terms of size and type, is determined by the following factors:

Oil and Gas Industry
Desanding hydrocyclones are widely used in the oil and gas industry for offshore and onshore production facilities to remove sand, sediment, and other solid particles from wellhead fluids, crude oil, or natural gas. This helps to prevent damage to downstream equipment, such as pipelines, valves, and separators, reduce erosion in flowlines and prevent sand accumulation in storage tanks.
Water and Wastewater Treatment
Desanding hydrocyclones are used in water and wastewater treatment processes to remove sand, grit, and other solid particles from raw water or wastewater. They are typically used as a part of the pre-treatment process to protect downstream equipment, such as pumps, valves, and membranes, from abrasive wear and clogging.
Desanding hydrocyclones are used in environmental remediation processes, such as groundwater or soil cleanup, to remove sand, sediment, and other solid particles from water or slurry. This helps to separate and remove contaminants from water or soil for effective environmental cleanup.
Construction and Dredging
Desanding hydrocyclones are used in construction and dredging operations to remove sand, silt, and other solid particles from water during excavation or dredging activities. This helps to maintain water quality, prevent clogging of equipment, and ensure efficient operation of construction or dredging processes.
Agriculture and Irrigation
Desanding hydrocyclones are used in agricultural and irrigation systems to remove sand, sediment, and other solid particles from water used for irrigation. This helps to prevent clogging of irrigation equipment, such as sprinklers and drip emitters, and ensure efficient water distribution and use in agricultural fields.
Desanding hydrocyclones are used in various industrial processes where solid-liquid separation is required. They are used in applications such as chemical processing, pulp and paper manufacturing, food and beverage production, and other industrial processes to remove solid particles from liquids or gases and ensure product quality and process efficiency.
